Admin rights

by shhite In reply to Need Admin access from Us ...

Admin rights are there for a reason and Techrepublic will not assist in bypassing them. If your company has restricted access that much there is a reason for it.

Unless your addmin has restricted access to windows messenger and assuming you are using a Windows OS as well, Windows messenger comes standard and is under tools on your internet explorer page.

Think about it

by IC-IT In reply to .....

TechRepublic members do not assist in helping people bypass administrative controls.
Now who do you think a lot of these members are and the type of work that we do?
If you answered administrators, specialists, and etc, you get a gold star and now realize why. ;-)

This is kinda like

This is kinda like a post with network magic. I believe OM has it "bookmarked." It had over 100 posts over Admin Privileges. OM could you bring up that page.

Go ask your boss to have them open it up for you

by jdclyde In reply to .....

if they will, then it will be an "easy" task.

If they don't, you can have an easy time from the unemployment line.

Not quite getting it.

by Kenone In reply to Need Admin access from Us ...

We're the folks who are responsible for keeping the crap off of the computers. If that means no IM then that's what it means. In all likelyhood your dept. supervisor (or someone even higher) has requested that messenger be blocked. Therefore it is.

web messanger ??

by Gate keeper In reply to mmk

if it is messenger you are after .. why not use web messenger. i doubt it requires admin privileges and works just as fine for what you want. if that is the only reason you require admin access.

Your attitude sucks for trying to do something against company policy, we IT administrators have to clean up after seagulls like you that crap all over the place and muck** up everything.

Go play somewhere else. We don't want you hanging around here.
